Video Transcript

Geoff Ulrich:

You could go with Mike Williams at captain and come back with a completely cheap stack. Mike Williams going off (could) lead you to a ton of different scenarios. Maybe Justin Herbert does throw for 300 yards, but maybe he throws three picks, too.

Williams at captain is intriguing for a ton of different reasons. It give you more flexibility. Obviously, you can play the Chargers stack with him. I think that’s what most people are doing.

Jeff Pratt:

I’m going with Patrick Mahomes, and then I’m comfortable stacking him (Travis) Kelce and rolling out the rest of my lineup with cheaper options. I just think Mahomes gives you the most upside out of all the players on this slate and the price isn’t too crazy at captain.

Geoff’s Pick: Mike Williams ($13,500)

Jeff’s Pick: Patrick Mahomes ($17,700)
